Night of Appreciation: THS honors fallen veterans

(Continued)

THOMASVILLE —

“To know that people still care about what he did and what we have to go through, it’s important and good to see.”

The Bulldogs and Trojans followed the ceremony with a 9-8 shootout in favor of Early County. 

Each team had a pair of five run outings in the first two innings before Early ran away with another four in the third. Thomasville then held the Trojans scoreless the remainder of the game, but couldn’t muster the critical runs in the final inning despite runners on second and third base.

“Shootouts are fun, but it’s more fun when you’re on the winning side,” Thomasville coach Erik McDougald said. “Brooks can hit the ball. We just got a little whipped tonight.”

The Bulldogs fall to 5-5 (1-2) with the loss and look to rebound on Tuesday against Pelham.

“I’m a fighter,” McDougald said. “Until I have no breath left, I’m going to keep fighting. I hope the kids I coach take on that mentality.”
